A man was found dead under a bridge in Gibson Creek Friday, the Ukiah Police Department reported.
The body was reported around 1:10 p.m. Dec. 13 by someone walking by the bridge under Highway 101, located behind the parking lot near Big Lots on South Orchard Avenue. When the person found the man unresponsive, they called 911.
“There are no signs of foul play,” said UPD Officer Kevin Murray, describing the man only as an elderly transient who may have died of natural causes. When asked whether the cause may have been due to the weather, Murray said he could not speak to that, only that his death did not seem suspicious.
The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene to retrieve the body and determine a cause of death.
